Description

This module exploits a vulnerability found in Lattice Semiconductor PAC-Designer 6.21. As a .pac file, when supplying a long string of data to the 'value' field under the 'SymbolicSchematicData' tag, it is possible to cause a memory corruption on the stack, which results in arbitrary code execution under the context of the user.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use exploit/windows/fileformat/lattice_pac_bof
msf exploit(lattice_pac_bof) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(lattice_pac_bof) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(lattice_pac_bof) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(lattice_pac_bof) > exploit

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
